Letter March

One linocut letter a day in March
This is an experiment in carving one linocut letter per day in an attempt to complete an entire alphabet by March 31st. Chosen typeface: Champion Gothic by Hoefler & Frere-Jones. Lightweight was chosen based on a deep rooted affection with its ampersand.

    March is over. What’s next?

    Now that A-Z is completed, I’ve decided that my set is complete. This weekend is about finishing test prints. Next comes the tedious task of trimming each block down to reflect the most accurate measurements of side bearings, head, and foot height. Figuring out a way to print the specimen set will follow that. In short, I don’t expect the prints to be complete for a few weeks at least. Also, I have another little project in the works. Thanks for checking in with Letter March! I’ll be sure to post updates as I have them. I have a strong feeling the trimming and printing process is going to be slightly frustrating, but here I go!
